How I wash my face:
How I keep the pimples away!
Welcome or welcome back to Wondered Whispers!
It's now time to get to business: We all love healthy, beautiful skin. This is really difficult to achieve when you are going through puberty or just have acne-prone skin. You know exactly what I am talking about. But FEAR NOT!! By getting into a healthy skin care routine you can help to reduce the amount of pimples and blackheads(monsters) you get on your face.
Go through these steps of how I take care of my skin as a teen with pimples:
Step 1: Rinse your face in warm water
I wash my face with warm( not hot) water to get rid of excess oil and surface dirt.
Washing your face with hot water will only make your pimples more inflammed.
Step 2: Cleanse to clean pores
I then cleanse using a cleanser especially suited for teens with pimples and if you are older I also recommend using a cleanser especially designed for acne-prone skin. Rub your cleanser in a circular motion all over your face for 30 seconds to a minute and no longer, to avoid irritating your skin and and pimples.
Step 3: Exfoliate your skin
This is very important! but for a person who has acne-prone skin, don't over exfoliate.
By over exfoliating, you are just aggravating your skin and pimples and you can also create small tears in the skin which make your skin worse. Also don't rub your exfoliater roughly into your skin.I exfoliate 2 times a week and no more than that and you shouldn't have to.
Step 4: Exfoliate your skin
After I have patted your skin dry with a clean wash cloth( remember to pat, not rub).
.I apply toner onto my face to help control the oil. Different toners have different functions( to control oil, close pores)
Step 5: Moisturize
One of the most common misconceptions is that if you have acne-prone skin, you shouldn't moisturize. You should moisturize even if you do get pimples on your face. If you don't, your skin could over-compensate and produce even more oil. This happened to me. I use a hydrating lotion during the day and when I go out I use a spf moisturizer. At night I use a overnight treatment for my spots( pimples)
Imperfections are a struggle for a lot of people and it might get worse when using certain products. Keep trying until you find what works for you. I sometimes think that it will never get better, but you have to persevere and push through and know your beautiful skin is awaiting you. If you are reading this you probably have pimples or blackheads( or both like me). That is why you need to try my skin routine above.
